Abstract: Software testing is a major process in every software development cycle, which is a very expensive procedure. Throughout this phase software testers as well as development companies are eager to verify the software from various viewpoints for repeated testing. But detailed testing requires code execution along with all valid inputs in the form of test cases which is not possible because of resource limitations. The test cases are automatically generated in many of the software. One of the important concerns for any coder during the maintenance phase is the selection of successful test cases for code execution. This paper includes an algorithm that is designed to figure out the statement coverage of a code with proper inputs by executing the priority based approach which involves sorting the inputs in ascending order so as to have an appropriate method to test the code for maximum statement coverage.
